I WAS the original discoverer of Judkins* Ointment, !
and sole proprietor of the patent from Sept’r, 1317,
u til the expiration of the same; but, having connect
«1 myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I
permitted the Ointment to bear his name. 1 he term
of the patent having expired on the 25th June, I have ,
made au improvement in the same, and taken out a pa
tent thereon. N SHKPHkKD
lj* I n position having been practised upon the nu >
lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of “ !u i
kins* Ointment,** the proprietor avails himself of the
authority granted to him in his letters paten,, now to
call the Ointment after his own name, Henceforth it
will be known by the name of
SIIEPUERD’s PATENT SPECIFIC
OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,)
When I first made and prepare*] this Ointment, and
hid, in s-veral instances, experienced its good etieett*,
I sent it to several physicians, with instructions »n what
cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the oint
ment would be a valuable public benefit, l concluded
that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many
hands, some of whom would probably undertake to
make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process - ne
vertheless, it might be propagated in this adulterated
s®e, as it might in some degree resemble the origi
nal ] in this way its good effects would be oblitera
ted. Under these considerations, l secured the origi
nal and certain rented t for those obstinate diseases,
some of which have so long bafHeJ the skill of me
dical science:
1st White swellings ot every description;
2d Sore legs and ulcer9oflong standing,
3J Schirrus or glandular turaor3, particularlythose
hardened tumors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes
erminate in ulceiate/i cancers;
4th Felons; or what some people know by thename
catarrhs, of every description.
5th Uheuoutic painsofthejoints;
6th Sprains and bruises of overy description, or in
whatever part situated;
7th Tetters of all kinds. In this complaintthe pa
tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part
outo fwater;
8th Chilblains or parUatFectcd by frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns and
•oaltU. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a
short time.
For women’s swelled breasts an J glandular swel
lings, it is superior to any medicine yet known to the
medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap
plications, (as it does nut contain the smallest atom of
any preparation of the mineral,) because it dues not
lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand
g. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal tlir*
external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming
carious oi rotten.it will stop the progress of ttie caries,
rcres.se the quantity of discharge, remove the otTen
sive smell, and ease the pains.
It cures the worst Felons and Whitlows, on applica
ioa of forty-eight hours.
The following notices on this may suffice*—
\zrxanuuia, February 26, loa5.
Thin may certify that l have, for a long time, been ,
a&iated, at brow, with attacks of (iout or Rheuma
tioi in the feet or other part* of the body, from which
Ihave always found relief by using l)r Judnins’s Pa
tent Specific Ointment, (now called Shepherd’s) pre
pajadcy Ur Charles ilerstons, of Frederick Fown,
llarylBd, in the manner prescribed in the printed di
reatioR. i have taken pleasure in spreading the
knowledge of this valuable remedy, believing it tube
one of the best of all the Patent Medicines, and by my
advice, several persons who were afflicted wall pains
like my own used it with great benefit.

Washington City, 11th Sept. 1835.
Doctor ff, ii union: Sir—I now undertake to
do what 1 should have done long since. Two .
or throe years my wife was afflicted with what
the Doctors call carbuncles on her back, and
tier sufferings trom which, for two months, were
beyond all description: ttiey broke, at different
times, into from fifty to one hundred holes, and
when the cores were extracted, and the skin cut
**ff? the places became one large sore, about six
inches in circumference, and were then an inch
in depth, bhe was attended by one of the first
liky9icians tit this City, and various remedies
were tried without rendering her any relief, or
preventing the sores from increasing in size to
•«ch a degree, that we became seriously appre
hensive that she coaid not survive much longer.
A friend calling to see her one day, and advis
ing the aae of Judkins's Ointment, 1 procured
some, and, however incredible it may appear,
yet such is the fact, two plasters effected a per
fect cure. Yours, respectfully,
G. CRANDELL.
Nbw-Market, Fob. 21, 1S33
f Mr. /7erstons: Sir—1 bought an article in Bal
timore having the name of Judkins’s Ointment.
sold some ol it, that was returned tome, not
oeing good. It is true, It had not your name on
'Jne lable round the pot which I now understand
s on the genuine article, as made by you.—
^his is to give notice that the public may be
guarded against an imposition of the kind.—
Yours, &c. A. I. BARNEY.
Dr. Drish, a Druggist in Leesburg, Va. inform
ed the subscriber, that three persons had each
obtained from him a pot of Judkins’s Ointment,
(not ol the subscriber’s make.) After having
tried it, they found it was not good, and return
ed it to him.
Messrs. L. $ R. T. Lowndes, merchants, Cumber
land, Md.
Gentlemen: As Mr. Herstons’ agents for the
sale oi Dr. Wm. Judkins’s patent specific oint
ment, 1 would inform you, that last summer l
was afflicted with a sore leg—the fame of Jud
kins's Ointment induced me to get a jug of it—
jut it happened not to be of Mr. Herston’s make.
1 used it according to the printed directions, but
my leg kept getting worse.
Mr. Herston’s, travelling to the west stopped
at my house, during the time, on looking at the
ointment 1 had, he immediately pronounced it
not of his make, and furnished me with one
which was. On opening and smelling it, 1 was
sensible of the difference, although it looked
like it. 1 then applied the ointment he gave me
to my leg; it became in a state of amendment
on using the first plaster, and so continued until
it got quite v. ell.
This ointment is certainly very valuab e, and
it would be a pity it should be lost to the public,
by a counterfeit article bearing the name, and
teingnot genuine. WM. K. NEWMAN.

in making this Ointment, and being concerned
in the patent right, the public have a .right to be
cautioned against imposition—and, in order to
effect this, and to secure to ihem the genuine ar

HYGEIAN BILLS.
WILLIAM STABLER, Chemist and Drug
ft gist, Alexandria, general agent lor the sale
of Dr. Ralph’s Improved Hygeian Bills, respect
fully states that he is enabled to supply this Medi
cine to the public and his mercantile connection,
upon the same terms that the General Office at
New York supplies them,—a liberal discount
being made to retail merchants, for a descrip
tion of the qualities of these pills, ne refers to the
following advertisement ol Doctor Ralph, v iz:
“The very general demand for Dr. Ralph’s
Hygeian Bills, can only be accounted for by
reason of the unexampled benefit and cures
which thousands have experienced from their
use. Moreover, fhey are founded on the wis
dom and experience of the British College of
Physicians and Surgeons, of London: and are
recommended by the writings and practice of Sii
Astley Cooper, Mr. Abernethy, and Dr. Babing
ton; as well as by the the greater part of the more
eminent practitioners of England and the Con
tinent.
The limits of'an advertisement will not allow
of entering upon an explanation of the principle
on which this medicine is suited to so many dif
ferent complaints. It must suffice to mention,
that each package of the pills contains three
boxes, two of which are gently opening, with a
strengthening quality combined, adapted to the
most feeble constitutions; while the other is pur
gative, but more or less so according to the dose.
Thus, by varying these Bills, and altering the
doses agreeable to the directions given, it is as
tonishing to witness the number ol diseases which
are cured or much alleviated by them; while
there is no disease whatever which can possibly
be injured by their use. 1 hey contain no mer
cury. and may be taken without the inconveni
ences ur caution which other medicines gene
rally require. The particular diseases in which
their efficacy has been proved and tested, in ma
ny thousand individual cases, are the following:—
Dyspepsia, and the whole of those numerous^
maladies which arise from habitual constipation
of the bowels; Apoplexy, and all alfections ot
the head; Gout; Lliieumatism; Scrofula, with
every species of Salt Rheum and Disorder of (he
I Skin; threatening Consumptive Cough; Liver
! Diseases, whether the effect of intemperance or
I hot climate; Fever and Ague; Common Fever,
vie.; Inflammations; Cholera Morbus, vie.; Jaun
dice; Dropsy; Piles; Gravel; Gleet, and certain
other complaints of the Urinary and Genital or
gans, &c. vie.
This medicine is also eminently useful in the
whole class of disorders peculiar to the female
constitution, especially in Nervous and Hystc,
rical disorders, Epileptic Fits, St. \ itus’s Dance
vie. vie.; Sick Head Ache, certain obstructions,
sexual weakness, vie. In smaller doses, it may
be relied on as the best and safest medicine in
pregnancy, and for the common disorders of
children.
The directions given with these Pills are re
markably plain and particular—the proper dose
and management of them being carefully men
tioned under the headofeach disorder separately

takes the lead in its relentless inroads upon human
life; yet liis dreadful disorder is easily ovi rcome in its

sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough
is the customary forerunner of the pulmonary con
sumption Improper neglect in the timely adminis

reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive
